Nurse Sue Bonnington is looking forward to the first Valentine’s Day she can hold her head high. Sue has coped with the distress of being bald since she lost her hair at age 10 but she starts this New Year with new confidence thanks to having a Hair Replacement system fitted by WHITE CLIFFS Hair Studio.
“The first thing I remember feeling when I first put the Hair System on was that I felt taller. For the first time I was looking at people in the face, not looking down or away. I felt taller. I had gotten use to looking away from people.” Before she had the Hair System fitted Sue was desperate for a solution. Since school she had suffered bullying and been told by doctors that there was nothing they could do to help her. She says: “After a bout of pneumonia when I was 16, my hair came out in tufts. I’d wake up with tufts on my pillow and kids can be cruel.”
“As I got older, confidence-wise, I had none to speak of. All the doctors had said I just had to learn to live with it. I had tried everything – lotions and potions, head massage, acupuncture. All the wigs I used were itchy and hot. They would fall off. In fact, wearing wigs draws more attention to yourself and doesn’t do anything for your confidence because you’re hiding even more.”
WHITE CLIFFS’ Hair Systems allow Sue to look like she has a full head of hair. The Hair System is undetectable to both sight and touch, safe, effective and natural looking. “I found WHITE CLIFFS just over a year ago, on the Internet. After I clicked on the website it took me three days to pluck up the courage to call. After my consultation I went to Green Park and cried my eyes out because I knew I found a solution to thirty years of suffering from Hair Loss. That was finally going to be over. The day they fitted my Hair System was the best day of my life, without a doubt.”
Sue has reclaimed her life since having her Hair System fitted: “My confidence has soared. I now go out in the evenings. I go to parties, which I never used to do. I can wear nice dresses. Most of the things that people take for granted, putting make-up on and so forth, I didn’t do. This Christmas was the first one I went out and bought a red strappy dress. The looks on my friends’ faces were priceless.” Sue will only say that she’ll be wearing that dress this Valentine’s Day. “I’ve certainly got more smiles, looks and compliments from men. But the real reward is what’s happening inside me. I’m changing, and everything else is coming from that. The dress is feminine and I feel gorgeous in it. I have my high heels all ready.”
“ WHITE CLIFFS’ Hair System has changed my life, how I view my life and the way I lead my life.” Sue is a radiotherapy nurse and wants to show women who suffer from Hair Loss that the distress associated with losing hair can be minimized. She has decided that she wants to promote WHITE CLIFFS’ Hair Systems to people about to go into radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Sue happily says, ‘I’m already meeting with counselors and patient focus groups about it. I want to talk to patients not as someone who is part of the hospital, but because of my experience.”
